out the accusation, that's like asking the government, how often do you beat your wife? >> i should have had a question mark at the back of it, ali, let's face it, okay? the facts are, ali, no matter how you want to look at this, we had 25 economists polled before this number came out. the average number they expected was about 115,000. not one of them had a number below 8.1. they were republicans and they were democrats. and all of a sudden -- >> i agree with you. >> you agree with that? >> i agree with everything you're saying, jack, and if your question was -- >> i wake up this morning and it's 7.8 with a bunch of asmptions. >> as the best ceo that america has ever had, there are two very powerful things you can say here. one is let's take a look at how the bls, bureau of labor statistics, and the department of labor measures employment, number one. and b, maybe mitt romney should be replacing president obama if he's not doing a good job. but to say there is corruption of somebody cooking these books, why do you do this? for a government in trust of private institutions, that's n
daily sacrifice to protect our government. but the government accountability board said the problem is isolate they have done their best to fix it >> 26 of the 851 local clerks who missed the deadline and we have a number of redundancies in the system. they got it in a timely manner and so they can mark it to get it counted. >> gab said electronic ballots cut transmission time in half and in most cases ballots are delivered . now the responsibility rests with a voters to get the ballot sent in on time . the lieutenant governor who was on "fox and friends" this morning is very worried. >> it is unacceptable that our military men and women, who allow us to sleep peacefully with our little kids at home and at night might be denied the opportunity to choose their next commander-in-chief. >> mitt romney campaign might fall suits elsewhere. nothin is imminent but we are monitoring other states and seriously considering filing a suit in vermont but the department of the justice filed their own suit. but there is only 24 days until the election and not much time to get it settled. >> not mu
's like asking the government how often do you beat your wife. >> i should have had a question mark at the back of it. let's face it, okay? but the facts are, no matter how you want to look at this, we had 25 economists polled before this number came out. the average number they expected was about 115,000. >> yes. >> not one of them had a number below 8.1. there were 8.1, they were republicans and they were democrats and all of a sudden -- >> i agree with you. >> do you agree with that? >> i agree with everything you're saying, jack. your question was -- >> then you wake up in the morning and it's 7.8 with a bunch of assumptions. >> there are two great facts you make. as the best ceo america has ever had, there are two very powerful things you can say here. one is let's take a look at how the bls, bureau of labor statistics and department of labor measures unemployment, number one, and b, maybe you think barack obama's not doing a good job and mitt romney should be replacing him. but to honestly suggest that there's corruption, that the obama campaign may have had something to do wi
. it is time to stop rewarding our friends and punishing our enemies and having the government treat every american the same, which is a foundational principal of the rule of law. and i think mitt romney has to do more of that. has he been specific with his plan? he laid five out in the debate, which is more than the president did. that's why independents thought mitt romney did very, very well. >> let me ask you about one of the issues where they differ, medicare. that is a big deal in florida romney says he supports vouchers for medicare, a plan that is not very popular. how does play in florida with all those seniors? >> right now in florida, you've got about 12 million registered voters. 36% who are republicans, you have 40% who are democrats. and then the 24% or the remainder is going to be the most important percentage in america and i think it's 24% who are not registered republican or democrat. these are going to be the most important voters in the united states. but, let's look at medicare. you have mitt romney who says, i want to give you vouchers, which i personally don't agree
to go up again. our information services and the government. gentlemen, we are out of time. we appreciate your time on the "washington journal." house of representatives is coming into session. a pro forma session. there will be no real business done today. thank you for being with us. enjoy your weekend. book tv begins on c-span 2 at 8:00 a.m. the chair lays before the house a communication from the speaker. the clerk: the speaker's rooms, washington, d.c. october 12, 2012. i hereby appoint the honorable scott desjarlais to act as speaker pro tempore on this day. signed, john a. boehner, speaker of the house of representatives. sage: the prayer will be offered by the guest chap lip, dr. david r-l r. roberry institute of the religion of the church of jesus christ of latter-day saints, washington, d.c. the chaplain: let us pray. dear father in heaven, humbly we bow before thee, recognizing our dependence upon thee and seeking thy guidance in the proceedings of this, the people's house. father, we express profound gratitude that thou has established our constitution by the hands
to the cyber threat requires the right policies and organizations across the federal government. for the past year, the department of defense has been working closely with other agencies to understand where are the lines of responsibility when it comes to cyber defense? where do we draw those lines? how do those responsibilities get executed? as part of that effort, the department is now finalizing the most comprehensive change to our rules of engagement in cyberspace in seven years. the new rules will make clear that the department has a responsibility not only to be thin d.o.d.'s networks -- to networks, but to defend the nation and our natural -- national interests in cyberspace. these new rules makes the department more agile and provides us with the ability to confront major threats quickly. to execute these responsibilities, we must have strong organizational structures in place. three years ago, the department took a major step forward by establishing the united states cyber command. under the leadership of a four start officer who also served as the director of the national security a
that ensued. i'm not the first person to question the government numbers and hopefully i won't be the last. and he references someone who's criticized him a lot, which is rich austin golsby, our guest friday morning after the jobs report. jack mentioned a op ed in "the new york times" back in 2003, and in that piece, goolsbee spells it out. in other words, the government has cooked the books. when people serve manager the military were classified from not in the labor force to employed in order to reduce the unemployment rate. nonetheless, the impact has been the same. he was making the point that there was a jobless recovery that came later because they had notless the unemployment rate rise to the level where it would have been normally. and jack is going to join us at 8:00 eastern. the people that we've had have talked about jack have just pointed out, look, it's at 7.8 for whatever reason. you've got part-time workers. all these census workers call people and find out whether they're working. if you've done anything in the last month, you could theoretically call them part-time. >> if
. i am currently unemployed. i worked for a company that works for the government. we have been told we would be losing our contract on january 27. they say the unemployment rate in oklahoma is pretty good and i hope so because i will be looking for a job in january. host: what type of work do you do? caller: we basically collect -- we make sure that insurance companies reimburse the government for accident claims. host: so it is health-related. caller: yes. host: now that you know your contract will not be renewed, tell us about what you are doing in the meantime. caller: i will sign up for some additional training at our local community college to improve my computer skills and hopefully find another government job. with the unemployment rate at 7.8% of which i believe is correct, i don't think i will have a problem. host: to many people work in your field? caller: i have worked in the field for the last 20 years with medicare processing. host: what about others you associate with? what does the work better look like for them? are there those unemployed and looking for work? what a
has a view, similar to the view he had when he ran four years ago, a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle-down government would work. that's not the right answer for america. >> the approach that governor romney is talking about is the same sales pitch that was made in 2001 and 2003. and we ended up with the slowest job growth in 50 years. we ended up moving from surplus to deficits. and it all culminated in the worst financial crisis since the great depression. >> i suppose mr. romney thought the president wouldn't recognize the term trickle-down if he twisted it around. romney is proposing boilerplate trickle-down economics providing tax relief for businesses with the false hope that they won pocket that money but rather put it into new jobs. help the rich get richer and then they'll help everyone else. but hey, mr. romney's plan as stated in the debate may in fact sound right to you. but don't call it new. it's a been there, done that track record. lower taxes on the rich, simply don't lead to job growth. when you compare the top marg
took both counties four years ago and the government hitting on thes between himself and the president this weekend. >> he for instance is going to raise taxes and his vice-president blurted out the truth. they plan on raising them trillion and it is two trillion when you put it together. that is an increase on taxes in maul business and that will mean less jobs. >>> and in the meantime obama campaign continues to hit mitt romney on the idea of being dishonest and nigh add out there saying he was not for a five trillion tax cut he was lying about that as he was when he said the president wants to raise the taxes $4000. obama disputed that that was independent but did not dispute the $4000 figure. and in the meantime president in cleveland making fun of mitt romney. listen to this. >> for all of you moms and kids out there. don't worry, somebody is getting tough on big bird. elmo, you better make a run for it. governor romney is going to let wall street run wild again but bring the hammer down on sesame street? >> and democrats are wondering where that president obama was in the debate
in the embassy for 20 years. this comes as yemen's government wages war against an al-qaida branch growing in strength. a tragic turn of events in the case was a colorado girl. they found a body in the park a few miles from where the park is. they are saying that it is the girl's body but the police are not confirming. >> at this time we are not making a connection to jessica ridgeway. the crime scene will be from now to tomorrow morning. >> gretchen: they believe she was kidnapped. we expect to learn more 8:30 a.m. eastern time. a worker rescued from a garage that landed on top of him. rescue crews pulled him out of the rubble at 1:00 k. and he is in critical condition. two other workers were killed and eight others were hurt. >> i had seen a lot of smoke and the building shaking and it started collapsing. >> gretchen: the garage under construction . one worker is still missing. lance armstrong not only used illegal steroids to win the tour de france. a stunning report said he juiced his teammates. 25 people testified against him including 11 teammates. his attorney said it is a hatchet j
a compelling government interest in creating a diverse student body, diversity that can enrich the student body. all good stuff, right? a white students denied admission in 2008 sued the university saying it's process was not tailored narrowly enough that it created reverse discrimination denied her equal protection under the constitution. the university says the process is narrow enough and works. the questions today, they sounded to split along ideological lines. supporters worry that this more conservative court could use this case to limit affirmative action programs not just an in education but also business and government. cheryl: peter barnes, thank you very much. adam shapiro with the banks being targeted by cyber attacks. >> we have seen increased traffic today and have experienced the management and service availability but declined additional comment at this time. yesterday capital one, today suntrust, the same group tied to islamic terrorist saying they would after jpmorgan chase and bank of america. tomorrow, regions financial. issue a statement instead we take online security seri
and student body than having the government come in and order that it do so. how is that? >> well, you know there are scenes that are considered socioeconomic. therefore, they are in different schools and university of texas has advocated that this is to help middle and upper class minority students. well, that is pitting minority against minority. how is that helping the disadvantaged people in this country. the people that don't have access. if there was assisting for people that don't have great education and to get them into better colleges, that is different. in this case, they are saying that you can equal grades or lesser grades. if you are a minority, we are going to lock someone like abigail fisher out. gerri: abigail fisher, her 2008 application was rejected. she was in the top 12% for graduating of the graduating class from a recognized for academic excellence. she was the orchestra president and a habitat for humanity volunteer. why shouldn't she be in the school lobby? >> okay, i agree with kelly. justice should be blind, that is why the lady that holds this is blindfolded. but
the real internet is very dissatisfying to the government of iran. there is all sorts of stuff on the internet the iranian mullahs do not like so they've been busy closing off bits of internet to the iranian public. you can't use google. now you can't use youtube. you can't use specific sites where the government doesn't like what you can read there or what you can see there. they've been doing that forever. kind of playing with the internet. iran's government is apparently getting tired of managing the increasingly complex patchwork of things they want to block the people in their country from seeing online and so instead they have a genius idea. they are suggesting they may just close off access to the real internet all together and instead build themselves their own internal government approved internet. just for their own country. it's not really an internet. it is more like an iran-ternet. they will build their own separate but equal. ridiculous right? but you can understand that sort of controlling dictatorial impulse here that gives rise to that sort of ridiculousness. i
talk about are some of the numbers. we had 600,000 government jobs added in the last two months. we had 873,000 jobs by a household survey, which is a total estimate, from 50,000 phone calls. of those 600,000 were temporary workers. chris, these numbers are all a series of assumptions. tons of assumptions. and it just seems somewhat coincidental that the month before the election the numbers go 0.1% below when they were when the president started, although, i don't see anything in the economy that says these surges are true. the 873,000 jobs in the household survey is the strongest economy since 1983. i don't think you can find an economist. there were 25 ever them this morning that predicted 8.1 to 8.2 but they did forget 114,000 jobs. we got 114,000 jobs and somehow, the assumptions ended up at 7.8. >> let me just get back to your tweet this morning. it must be embarrassing for you to do a tweet after the power you used to have. tweeting doesn't seem like something i'd hear from jack welch. unbelievable job numbers, fair enough. these chicago guys will do anything to change the number
with this -- a lot of people would disagree with it -- let's get the government out of your life as much as possible, less taxes, less regulation, less government spending. the second thing romney did, which was really important, he said, look, i have a history of bipartisan cooperation. i worked with democrats. i did this in massachusetts. if you talk to democrats in massachusetts, they say romney was a very good governor, that they could work with him. maybe obama saw this because the significance of the last 3 1/2 years in the obama presidency is there was never cooperation or rarely cooperation. no or very few bipartisan agreements. the only time they did something was when they brought joe biden in to negotiate with the republicans. so maybe obama sensed that. but i don't know -- it's worthy to investigate. >> sean: yeah. one theory i have, i want to ask you one more question about your theory. i would argue, $6 trilon in debt, very hard to explain away. i would argue that, you know when 2012 economically is worse than 2011, which was worse than 2010, unemployment in 2012, fewer jobs in this ye
saw was a different approach to governance on display and a very different set of policies he was underscoring but not actually going off any of the policies he had espoused up to that night. >> i think you're right. what's been different was tone more than substance, style more than substance. i also think it's not a surprise that that's what he did at a debate that is not strictly for the republican audience. i think he's appealing to a broader group of voters. one of the things that romney has been very self-conscious about this entire general election is being called a flip-flopper. he was concerned about this in the primaries, but he has stuck with this on the issue of immigration until recently. he has actually had some positions that have modulated. he took a stand on obama's executive action about some temporary visas being issued and this was the first time he had commented on it in about 100 days and it was the day before the debate. he gave a little more meat on the bones the day before the debate about tax policy. but you're not seeing him change his stance and i t
that big bird was driving the federal government. >> cenk: great numbers unelement has fallen to a 44-month low to 7.8%. it used to be at 8.1% so we're finally below 8%. 114,000 jobs have been added and the july and august numbers added moreobobhich happepe all the t time.im thisthss gat gewatew foror america. more people back at work. so of course the republicans are celebrating right? of course not. no way. they're panicked over it. oh, my god this is going to cause us this election. dammit, i can't believe more americans are working. now go to unbelieving. unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate, so change numbers. that's ironic coming from jack welsh because g.e. was fined by the fcc $50 million for cooking their books for about a decade. it began under jack welsh puerto rico i cook the books. i assume that they'll be as dirty as i am. >> you're saying that the administration is actively manipulating that data, correct? >> well, absolutely. >> i want to read you one tweet from jack welch who used to run general election. a man who most people would a
, without a government federal subsidy and all that debt. >> let's talk about friday's job numbers. it raised some suspicions among governor romney's allies. on friday morning, jack welch, the former chairman of ge said unbelievable job numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate so change numbers. steve forbes follows up and says welch is right. does governor romney put any stock in those theories and have any suspicions at all about the bls numbers? >> george, the numbers themselves are very damning. when you look at it, we had fewer jobs created in september than were created in august, fewer jobs created in august than were created in july. our unemployment rate has come down because for -- since president obama took office, for every new job created, more than six workers have left the labor force. if labor force participation was what it was when the president took office, unemployment would be around 10.7%. these jobs that were added in september were largely part-time jobs. so we still have 23 million americans -- that number has not changed at all -- who are
, a lot of government jobs added. but for some reason, i've always been told you need 200 to 250 to make a dent. 114 got a 300 basis point drop? it's crazy. and there's a reason -- you know what they're calling people that are saying this. they're calling help truthers. throwing them in with the birthers. >> i don't believe that there was conspiracy to make the jobs number -- >> i know that. and anyone that says that will be called a truther. so you don't say the government's lying. you can't say that. yet if you add in two months more government workers than at any it time since 1948 for the past two months, the government can do -- >> but that goes to his point the u-6 number is -- i don't know if it's more accurate. >> it's broader and takes in to account the part-time workers that don't want to be part-time. they want the full-time job. so it's a broader measure of giving us the breadth of the labor market and the health of it and that's why when i say the unchanged number, i sort of ignored the headline number and didn't think it was that big of a deal. >> normally we'd focus on the
, to your point, they were who they always have been, even in governing. barack obama has infuriated his own base because of this perception that he doesn't fight hard enough. >> recurrent theme. >> it's a recurrent theme. with mitt romney the recurrent theme among republicans, the reason he doesn't have a lot of frentsds in his party is the idea that he's a vicious debater. newt gingrich called him a liar in which he demolished supposedly the best debater in the republican party and he is known to be a flip-flopper. what did he do in that debate, he flip-flopped. everybody played the type. >> dedrick's point is smart about mitt romney in some ways was the beneficiary of lowered expectations and the beneficiary of the success of the obama campaign as painting him as a character of a ba foonish budocrat. by the time john kerry took the debate stage the bush campaign had done such a good job of making him look like a ridiculous figure and then he came out and it was like, oh, right, this is a smart, competent individual who spent his life in the united states senate. it was the same thing with
government austerity cuts. pensioners clashed with riot police and burned an eu flag. german chancellor angela merkel is scheduled to arrive in athens at about 6:30 eastern time today for a six hour visit. police banned protests in most of central athens and 6,000 officers are trying to keep control. this is merkel's first stop will greece since the debt crisis kree resulted back in 2009. and carolyn roth will be joining us live. >>> and both president obama and mitt roy in will be in ohio today. voters in the swing state are getting their last chance to register for next month's election. the polls are now all over the map. pew has romney up four points, but gallup says the positive jobs report gave president obama a five point boost. among our guests, ken langone and donald trump. and focusing on issues of foreign policy and national security, we have senator john mccain. and by the way, if you went to sleep early last night, the texans beat the jets 23-17. this win brings the texans perfect record this season to 5-0. we will have more in squawk sports. first andrew has the morning's
, the government provides health care by putting you in an ambulance and taking you to the er to get treated. well, now he's saying people don't die because they lack insurance. he told the columbus dispatch editorial board, quote, we don't have a setting across this doesn't where if you don't have issues he say, tough luck, you're going to die when you have your heart attack. no, you go to the hospital, you get treated, you get care, and it's paid for, either by charity, the government or by the hospital. we don't have people that become ill, who die in their apartment because they don't have insurance. you go to the er. is that the republican health care plan? >> no, chris. >> michael steele. >> chris, why do you even bother to go there. he's giving an example that we are a caring people, that we do not leave people on the street to die. >> is that the republican health care plan? >> come on, chris. it's not. >> what is it? >> it's making sure that people have affordable access to health care costs across the board, bottom line. and the way -- >> that's not what he said. >> that's exactly what h
